Dressing for very casual outings without losing my personality has always been challenging. Accessories are my favorite part of every look, which may explain why I am more comfortable wearing a blazer and short boots with jeans rather than a tee and sneakers.
Mr. Mickey and I spent a rainy Sunday afternoon checking on my parents (they are much better now!), enjoying a light lunch, and visiting friends. The temperatures were in the mid-fifties, so layers are necessary now.
Nothing we wore is new, but perhaps seeing how we put together old favorites will help you use what you already have differently. Most of his attire is from Polo Ralph Lauren.
My denim jacket and slightly flare-leg black jeans are from Talbots. The long sleeve v-neck black tee is from Banana Republic. This classic basics combination includes a small silk scarf, loafers, a pewter-colored bag, and tiny pearl earrings, all from Nordstrom but purchased more than a year ago. Several different styles of the best no-show socks are here. Finally, a few polished accessories can elevate even the most casual looks.
Now that I am mostly retired, my randomly published posts will share ideas for fun day trips, outfit combos, and other tidbits but not many product links since I rarely shop for new items. However, any shopping links may allow me to earn a small commission at no cost to you.
